Differences between french and american dating culture
I have even heard Americans think that 200 years was "ancient". Europeans would tend to think that driving 100 km is quite a long way, while for Americans that would be rather near.
Canadians are somewhere in between, sometimes more European, but often closer to their southern neighbours. A 100-year old house or church is considered new by Europeans, but old by Americans.Americans have a "Congress", while Europeans all have "Parliaments".American politcs is chiefly curtailed to two parties, which would be center-right and right, but lack influential left-wing or green parties.Europe itself has the greatest linguistic and cultural diversity of the Western world.However, the common history, geography and socio-political evolution of the European continent, as well as the cultural divergences that have occured in former colonies, have resulted in the creation of a common basis for European culture that contrast (sometimes sharply) with the USA or the rest of the Western world.
